Poker Tables - Taking Notes On Your Opponents

Feb 11, 2008
As you might or might know, every poker online site allows players to take notes on other players. Constantly taking notes on other players will give you an advantage in future hands and future Sit-N-Go games. I guarantee you will run into another player again that you took notes on in a previous game. You will see the same players quite often, even on large sites such as Full Tilt Poker or Poker Stars.

When playing at the poker tables, what should you include in notes? You should be looking for the best players and the weakest players. The reason for looking for the best players is you're looking to avoid the best players and take advantage of the weakest players. Here are some great questions to ask when analyzing players and taking notes.

Are the players loose or tight? For example, do they always call often preflop with weak hands, or do they only play premium hands when they raise?

Is the player aggressive or passive? Aggressive players will be constantly betting on the flop with nothing, raising often preflop, and playing many draws willing to invest a lot of chips to see if a draw hits. Passive players will continuously call bets.

Does the player defend their blinds? Take a note on the player if you notice a player always folding in the blinds to a raise. You should take advantage of this and start raising in late position when they are the blind.

Is the player winning or losing? This is a very simple note to take and it can help you identify exceptional and horrible players.

Is the player playing clear-cut or pulling risky moves such as trapping other players or constantly slow rolling monster hands? Also, does the player like to check raise or bluff?
Bet with only good hands?

Fold with bad ones all the time?

Taking notes is a valuable tool all poker sites offer and it almost always goes unnoticed. By taking notes, you will definitely see an increase in profits, and eventually you will be able to play Sit-N-Go's full time as a job.

If you do not start taking notes and you want to make Sit-N-Go's a full time job, you will absolutely kick yourself for not taking notes. Online texas holdem has many great features such as taking notes and for FREE, why not take advantage of this? I mean take for example the world series of poker or the world poker tour, those guys study video after video of how people play. They see the same faces over and over again, especially the pro poker players. Sit-N-Go's only have 9 people at the table and on average if you stick to the same site, you will be sitting with at least 2 or 3 of these people that you have played with before. Even if you THINK your good at poker and do not need any more advice, PLEASE consider taking notes. It's a very simple and easy way to increase your skill level at the poker tables.
